  1. 1. Day 2. Golding 3. Walters Special mention to Bussey (for such a great shift, coming back in a bit earlier than perhaps even he expected) and Maskill (who I think has been unlucky not to feature more than he has), who together ensured we didn't miss Cam King too much. It's testimony to how well Day is playing that he stood out on a day of great performances all across the park. An excellent team showing. So satisfying to put one over the likes of Duffy and Beaumont - especially given the lengths the ref was going to to help them out.
  2. Nor me, but then unlike them we're not worthless turrds that can't handle their cheap ale. A big well done to all the morons responsible for this latest fine, and their apologists on this forum too. If the intention was to damage the club and hold us back, both on and off the pitch, mission f*cking accomplished.
  3. Yes sorry about that. I mistook you for Jo Brand.
  4. 1. Golding - had a shed-load to deal with all afternoon in tricky conditions, but handled everything they chucked at him - be interesting to see that grounding behind our sticks in the first half again, 'cos it looked a close call to me. 2. Day - set the tone defensively and going forward, an absolute rock of a player. A great way to celebrate his new contract - Brad down the left and Johnny D down the right gives us great balance and firepower. 3. Holmes - came to the fore on a quieter afternoon for Chissy, kept us going forward well and showed great strength and determination to score a crucial try. Wish we could sign him back on again permanently. Excellent defensive effort today, epitomised by Sutcliffe's man-handling of Gelling in the first half. It needed to be too as we weren't exactly at our fluent best with ball in hand. Closing out a game like that against a strong Widnes side says a lot about our team spirit at the moment and the quality within the squad. A big well done to Carr and all the lads, and my condolences to poor/destitute/full-time/SL-salaried/parachute-paymented Widnes.
  5. That's nothing, yesterday I was in Pont Au Fract.
  6. 1 Chisholm 2. Johnny D 3. Harrison Chisholm a clear and deserved first, but plenty of contenders for 2 and 3. A great team performance that allowed individual skill and flair to flourish.
  7. 1. King - got us rolling quickly and was typically at the heart of so much of the good stuff that we did. A captain-in-waiting? 2. Harrison - his best showing yet, a fantastic shift of strong running; good to see him starting to really show what he can do. 3. Holmes - loads of creativity and go-forward (so much so that Chissy could take it a bit easier this week...), and great to see him looking still so full of energy at the end. Special mention for Cooper (wreaked havoc) and Locky (really helped us dominate in the forwards), and maybe half a dozen others as it was such a solid team performance.
  8. Agreed JC, he obviously needs proper game time now to regain that match speed and sharpness which we know is such a hallmark of his game and that has to come against someone - might as well be a side that's struggling a bit at the wrong end of the league. That said, I'm not expecting it to be an easy game by any stretch, they'll be in a different place thanks to the change of coach and looking to get stuck into us, but that should also benefit him in the long run. We should be aiming to give him the full 80 minutes today.
  9. Bussey Chisholm Hardcastle Special mention to Harrison for his impact - best we've seen from him so far - more of the same please. Render was also very good again.
  10. That was a superb team performance; if only we'd been more clinical we could have won by 20 points! I only hope Carr and the boys turn out to be as chuffed with the performance as I was. I'd say we're sometimes guilty of playing the 'idea' of teams like Toronto as much as anything else - one of the downsides perhaps of having a younger inexperienced team - rather than just playing what's in front of us, and we certainly gave them too much respect in the first half. Once we got past that and cut loose in the second half, they really struggled to stay with us. When you consider the amount of money Toronto's sugar-daddy has sp*nked over what is little more than a toy, you have to laugh at how very ordinary they are starting to look. Hugely encouraging then to see us outplay and outfight Toytown (again!) for large parts of the game, which is hopefully a sign of what we may yet be capable of this season if we can just live up to the benchmark we've now set, while maintaining a settled side (particularly in the pivots) and riding our luck a wee bit more on the injury/suspension front. I'd be tempted to try and sign Chisholm right now if at all possible, even if it costs a small fee, as he is clearly improving our creative output exponentially, while it would also remove the risk of Bradford messing us about with the loan later in the season. Either way I'm very glad to have him.
  11. Think everyone in the Railway End called that one, apart from me as I'd forgotten the 7 tackle rule..... No complaints about the ref, he did make the odd baffling decision but that was for both sides. Deservedly beaten by a determined and well-organised Dewsbury. Finny and Sykes 'old-manned' our halves.
  12. Have to agree, far too many of our lot didn't turn up (particularly the halves) and all Dewsbury's lads did. They deserved the win and we deserved everything we got! Tough to actually come up with three names, but I thought Luke Cooper had a pretty good dig when he came on; he was probably as farked off as we all were watching from the sidelines. Struggling to vote for anyone else though. 1. Cooper - by a mile 2. King - just 3. That's it
